Mother Jones recently published a piece with text by Julie Winokur and photos by Ed Kashi about immigrant detention in the United States.
Julie writes, “When asylum seekers arrive in the United States they face a harsh reality. The ones who aren’t illegally turned away at the border are often sequestered, shackled, and transported to a detention facility that resembles prison.”

In Ed Kashi’s photo from August 2017, Laurel Cline visits her mother Lenora in a nursing home in Los Angeles, California. This morning, AP announced a new report detailing misuse of antipsychotics in nursing homes. Analyzing the latest government data, Human Rights Watch estimates that there are currently about 179,000 people in nursing homes who get antipsychotics every week without having a diagnosis for which the drugs are approved.
